On what system? Windows or Unix? Which download? The exe or the zip?
I'm guessing you downloaded the zip file on a Unix or Linux system. If
so, you should not copy the files into the site-package directory
yourself. You are supposed to use the included setup.py file like this:
unzip into some local directory
cd into that directory
python setup.py build
python setup.py install
Then your import should work fine.
